mHealth, or Mobile Health, promises to revolutionize the delivery of health care around the globe. As cell phones, smartphones, and other mobile devices become more ubiquitous and integrated into our daily lives, does that mean diagnosing, treating, or preventing disease could be a click away anywhere in the world?

On the iPhone platform alone, there are 2,228 applications that fall under the medical category and entrepreneurs have already started to develop the next wave of innovative medical applications across the Android, Windows Mobile, iPhone, and on proprietary medical device platforms. How can entrepreneurs embrace this mobile medical revolution?

Please join us as we kick off VLAB?s 21st Year on September the 21st at the Stanford Business School.

Topics to Be Explored:

* Will mobile technology reduce in-person doctor visits and help mitigate the doctor shortage?
* Will mobile wellness applications motivate people to focus on preventative health?
* Can mHealth help developing countries by providing access to medical care to almost anyone simply through a cell phone connection?
* How can mHealth technology companies navigate the current health care system including regulatory bodies such as the FDA, HIPAA and data privacy policies, and the payer reimbursement model?
